Behind The Lens

Location
Somewhere on the Dempster Highway in Yukon, Canada.
Time
Dusk. Hard to say what exact time. This photo was taken back in 1982, before EXIF. The sun sets amazingly late in the evening during the summer months.
Lighting
Natural.
Equipment
Minolta XG-M, 28-70mm lens cannot remember the make. Handheld.
Inspiration
If you have ever been driving in the Yukon, every mile inspires you in some way. Dirt highways through beautiful lonely scenes and not another person in site. Pristine wilderness as far as the eye can see.
Editing
Scanned from a 35mm transparency. Touched up in Photoshop.
In my camera bag
Now I shoot with a Nikon D90 (yes it's dated, but I will love it until it dies). 18-105mm, 70-300mm, tripod, SD cards, Wireless remote, circular polarizer filter. Bare bones.
Feedback
Sorry I can't be more detailed by if you want great landscape photos, you have to find great landscapes.
